I am the Evening News small business of the year 2012 and Garden Landscaper of the Year 2015. Read about this on the Scotsman web site for their article or you can download the Evening News article.

We are fully qualified, fully insured, reliable and hard working. We would be delighted to discuss our landscaping services in Edinburgh and the Lothians.

I have been a gardener here in Edinburgh for almost 9 years and have studied garden design at the Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh.

garden landscaping case study

Our garden landscaping services we employed to renovate this North Edinburgh neglected garden. Our clients wanted a low maintenance garden as they lead a very busy work and family life. They wanted a new patio area next to their house for entertainment and relaxing - when the Scottish weather permits, and a new driveway. There were two large areas of the garden that they wanted renovated as cost effectively as possible.

We designed the garden with this in mind and built garden patios, raised beds, gravel / slate beds and a new driveway.

Below you will find some before and after photos of this project.

Garden patio & paving - if you look at the house and wall surrounding the property you will see brown, yellow, pink colours. We chose a natural paving product called "buff" that would compliment these colours and would brighten up this entertainment area. A brick edging round this patio was designed as a way to tie the patio to the walls. Rope lights and spike lights were installed to enhance the use of this patio paving project.

Driveway - The main access to the property is from the driveway therefore our solution had to look great. There was not a budget for a mono block driveway so we designed a driveway to use supported gravel mechanism. This support mechanism is designed to hold several tons of vehicles and with careful choice of gravel can look great.

Raised beds - we chose to install wooden sleepers to act as a visually strong wall to enclose this large 30m patio. A high quality weed sheet and blue slate finished this patio.

Gravel patio - using a new weed sheet and refreshing the pearl gravel was a great, cost effective way to renovate this part of the garden.
